CHA-YON RYU
DOWNTOWN DOJANG.... THEN & NOW


Standing next to G.M. Kim Soo are General General Choi Hong-hi and G.M. Lee Nam-suk of Changmu-Kwan. Gen. Choi figured
since G.M. Lee Nam-suk
was G.M. Kim Soo's teacher in the early 1950's that he might be able to persuade him to join the ITF.

Gen. Choi Hong-hi visited Houston two more times in an effort to persuade G.M. Kim Soo to join the ITF. G.M. Kim Soo firmly turned
Gen. Choi
Hong-hi's offer down saying that he needed to preserve Master Yoon Byung-In's legacy. Gen. Choi Hong-hi wasn't upset and he
remained a good friend of G.M. Kim Soo's. In May 2005 G.M. Kim Soo visited his cemetery in Pyong Yang, N. Korea.
